Fisker Karma first promo [video]

Fisker has released a new promotional video for the Karma plug-in hybrid.

The sexy sedan features two electric motors that produce 300 kW (402 hp / 408 PS) and 1,300 Nm (959 lb/ft) of torque. They are powered by a 200kW lithium-ion battery pack, which allows the car to travel up to 80.5 km (50 miles) before a GM-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine kicks in to recharge it.

In terms of performance, the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in approximately six seconds, hits a top speed of 201 km/h (125 mph) and as an estimated combined fuel consumption rating of 2L/100km (117.6 mpg US).

The Karma was scheduled to go on sale last year, but it was delayed for unspecified reasons. It is now expected to launch in 2011.
